HOUSTON (AP) – Asher O’Hara crashed through a defender at the goal line to score on a 14-yard keeper, lifting Middle Tennessee to a 40-34 walk-off win in double overtime against Rice. Mike Collins, who went 18-35-242 passing with four touchdowns, led the Owls on an 83-yard drive to grab a 34-31 lead with 34 seconds left in regulation and seemed on the verge of a win in OT before Collin Riccitelli’s 40-yard field goal try was partially blocked by Jalen Jackson and bounced three times off the goalposts before falling back onto the field.
